A 16-year-old Lakeland boy died after his vehicle overturned early Sunday in Pointe Coupee Parish, officials said.
At 12:27 a.m., the Pointe Coupee Sheriff’s Office responded to a call of an overturned vehicle on a private road in Ventress, said Steve Juge, a spokesman for the Pointe Coupee Sheriff’s Office. The vehicle was occupied by two juvenile males.
The driver, a 16-year-old boy from Lakeland, died of his injuries, Juge said. A 14-year-old boy, also from Lakeland, was transported to Pointe Coupee General with non-life-threatening injuries.
Names of the two boys have not been released. Alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the crash, Juge said.
